Hey everyone! If you've been reading my need for speed journey, you'll have noticed that I didn't actually post this back in May (which is when the race was) because it's been in my draft posts this whole time!

Need For Speed | Week 1 | 10k Training | Diary of an Injured Runner

It dawned on me the other day that it's only 4 weeks until the Bristol 10k. While there isn't anything particularly spectacular about this, as I'm running multiple 10ks this year, it's a massive deal for me because this is where I got my race PB last year. I've never come close to hitting or… Continue reading Need For Speed | Week 1 | 10k Training | Diary of an Injured Runner

Bath Skyline 5k Race Review (2018)

Hilly, narrow and technical under foot this is one of those races you should be taking in the splendid scenery but will probably be too busy trying not to take a tumble. You join a footpath which skirts around the edge of the golf course and descend into Bathampton Woods into technical terrain. There are… Continue reading Bath Skyline 5k Race Review (2018)

Tick Tock on the Clock but the party don't stop... daylight savings are here! And what better way to celebrate spring on the way with a race, right!

Two Tunnels 5k Race Review (2017)

The whole route is on a fast tarmacked surface with gentle gradients and heads uphill towards 408m long Devonshire Tunnel and emerges into the wooded Lyncombe Vale. The Two Tunnels races go through this disused railway line which The Somerset and Dorset Railway closed in 1966 and until 2013 the tunnels have been sealed and… Continue reading Two Tunnels 5k Race Review (2017)
